are saying your comments and bill clinton's difference made a show. >> i feel like a ref on this show. >> that's why you understand being paid well. more value. >> you get a lot of penalties. >> i do get a lot of penalties. be careful. you need to stay lady like. >> really. >> that's what todd akin told me. >> double flag. question for you. why are you the only one who can bring up todd akin? because i want to. >> well, there is a recent development. >> right. there wasn't one? i brought it up. go ahead. toss to sports. that's fine. that's a penalty. >> she's tough. >> wouldn't you like to go back to nice? >> no. >> it's beautiful. a lot cheaper. it's off-season. >> i have things to do. >> let's go to new york and, brian, what are you looking at? >> anything but the fiscal cliff right? i've been called a screaming conservative and raging liberal. i guess that means i'm doing something right. let's go to sports now. >> please. just do it. >> it is bipartisan. start with the nfl. ravens and browns last night. i couldn't watch the game because i agreed to come thon show this morning. uni
clinton was running for reelection, at this point in the campaign he was not at 44%. he was at 504%. that is that 10 percent difference president obama has so destroyed the confidence of his own party in an independence that he is lagging ten points behind where bill clinton was. he is in terrible political say and for reasons i will review here shortly he is going to get worse before it gets better. i personally believe that 44 percent is a ceiling, not a floor. that is, inflated. my friend, great assistant to richard nixon, ronald reagan speech writer and adviser has long argued that there is no such thing as a bradley effect. the bradley effect is named for mayor tom bradley of los angeles when he ran against george deukmejian did not do as well in the final balloting is he had been doing in the polling. for years pundits have ascribe that to the brad the affected people are free to say they're not going to vote for african-american because they don't want to be up to the prejudice he they're talking anonymously to pollsters. and he has all the data, and i believe him, but i bel
clinton that they could find. host: all right, kevin, we're going to leave it there and move on to beverly in kearney, missouri, on our democrats line. good morning. caller: good morning, peter. host: how are you? caller: i'm fine. you look nice as usual. you know, you remind me of the richard gere in the movie "american gigolo." host: you used to say i looked like lance armstrong, i'll take that one too. now that we're beyond that -- caller: no, i mean the way he dressed. host: oh, all right. caller: he'll try on everything. host: i got to tell you, that was a little before my time. caller: oh, you should watch it. he always looked great. host: all right. hey, beverly, what do you think about media coverage of the campaign? caller: i think they go -- i think they go with whatever is the hot story of the day, you know? gosh, i remember when obama was running against mccain, and it seemed like every day i heard about the muslim and the birth thing, it was terrible. they didn't think that that was biased. it was the story of the day. host: beverly, you're in missouri. are you seeing a lot of
hillary clinton. he then enacted the biggest mandate in the history of the country. so i think the best way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color
, not as a progressive, which, by the way, is what obama is, a progressive, just like hillary clinton, who admitted she was. host: let's not go too far off the rails here. i understand that the constitution, the check and balances that the constitution refers to is between the legislative, the judicial, and the executive branch, and doesn't really mention the establishment of a two-party system. caller: you need a two-party system. look what happened the first two years -- even though it took obama two years to get the healthcare through, they still had everything right there. unless you have a complete representative, you know, in there that represents everyone and just not one side, like all progressives or all republicans, you don't have those checks and balances, whether it's the legislative, judicial, presidency, whatever. you need -- the bottom line -- you know, there's one problem on this whole thing. obama is not a politician. i mean, he cannot negotiate. reagan was in there. he had a democrat in congress, and he was able to negotiate like several people. obama can't do that. he goes out there
secretary of state hillary clinton sat down with him, though, in new york. >>> mitt romney will focus on fund-raising tonight. he hopes to bring in $7.5 million for his campaign at two events in the boston area. romney spent yesterday campaigning in northern virginia. he met with veterans and their families in springfield. romney trails the president in virginia in recent polls. he hopes next week's first presidential debate will give him some momentum going forward. >> you don't have a great opportunity with debates to talk about my vision, vision for the country. the president will talk about his. those who believe we want bigger government, more intrusive government, trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see will vote for him. those who believe we should encourage economic growth, support small business, and create more jobs will vote for me. >> that first debate will take place wednesday night in denver. >>> president obama will stay here in the district today. he has three campaign events scheduled in d.c. the president also campaigned yesterday in virginia. he was 200 m
to be reelected. do you think, steve, people believe the bill clinton argument that nobody, no president, could have actually solved this in four years? >> yeah, i do think that had some effect. there is no question that president obama came out of the conventions with a little bit of momentum. you talk, it is not only showing up in the public polling that we're talking about here today but talk to republican pollsters polling on senate and house races and they will talk about what they call the clinton bump. they have seen it across polling in various parts of the country that voters who are asked a question is the country on the right track, is the country on the wrong track, which most pollsters believe the single best determiner ho will win in november, there was a jump in the right track number, even if they don't specifically agree with how the president is handling the economy, on the general question whether we're on the right track, they think we are, because you think in part democrats successfully pressed this message that nobody could have done better than president obama's done. gr
as condescending. back when he told hillary clinton that she was likable enough, remember in 2008 during their debate? he's reportedly been practicing some zingers to use against the president. and while powerful sound bites get lots of plays in the days after the debate, remember where the beef commercial, stuff like that. it's questionable if a few good one-liners will be enough to put mitt romney in the white house. here's the question, what can mitt romney do to win the first debate? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post a blog or go to "the situation room" facebook page. >>> president obama's court looks different than it was when he was elected with two new justices he nominated. how could it change in four more years if he is re-elected? joe johns has been looking at this story. yesterday, joe, you did a whole piece on how the supreme court might be affected if mitt romney were elected. today you're looking at how the supreme court could be elected if the president is re-elected. >> right, wolf. if the president is re-elected we already have a pretty good road map to the kind of per
class believes. the things that president clinton used, balanced approach. opportunity and, i thought that governor romney really didn't do anything to dissuade the general public from the view that he would like to go back to the days of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and hope that this time, instead of growing deficits, and growing unemployment, that it grows jobs. so governor romney really needed a game changer tonight. i hate to say this but i find myself agreeing with chris christie. governor romney really needed to turn the world upside down. he really need ad game changer tonight. i think you would be sore pressed to find that magic moment that was the game-changer tonight. and, so, that was my view in watching it anyway. i also thought the president did a very good job finally nailing governor romney down to admitting he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might want to listen to this. i'm still not sure exactly what governor romney was saying about his promise o
recall a heated exchange between hillary clinton and president obama back in 2008's debate in south carolina. >> while i was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shipped overseas you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. i was fighting these fights. i was fighting these fights. knives fighting against those ideas when you were practicing law and representing your contributor in his slum landlord business, in inner city chicago. >> so, wolf blitzer, joe johns myself had an opportunity to ask questions of the candidate in myrtle beach. do you remember the energy in that room. i mean you knew when they went after each other the battle was on. it was game on time. you had cheers. you had jeers. all that. and people remember those moments. what do you think -- what do you think the president -- what do you think he learned out of that experience? >> you know, i thought about that for a while today, suzanne. i think the president clearly perfected his style. it was pretty clear to me that he started seeing even then that any flashes of anger on h
immediately. barack obama. it happened with hillary clinton time and time again where hillary clinton, chris dodd, joe biden, outdebated barack obama in every single debate back in 2008. every single debate. chris dodd, joe biden, hillary clinton just ran circles around him. and people say, well, why can't he -- at some point you just have to say, because he doesn't have his -- i mean, a great of a grasp on the issues as the people he's debating. >> that's sobering but it's true. i still believe it's the professor. >> how can you be president of the united states, mark halperin, and, i mean, and not have these basic answers? >> well, it's more than i think the format than not having the answers. he spent a lot of the evening going after mitt romney for things that he thinks he can win the election on like taxes and medicare. it wasn't like he never responded to it. >> but isn't the format in washington is that you get in a room with someone and you go at it and you try and figure it out? >> that's what we're asking. has he been too isolated? listen, we talked to him. the guy is brilliant. he
picture possible of hillary clinton that they can find. host: kevin, we will leave it there. beverly in missouri, on the democratic line. caller: good morning, peter. host: how are you? caller: i'm fine. you remind me of richard gere. [laughter] host: used to say i look like lance armstrong. i will take that one, too. caller: i mean in the way you dress. host: that was a little before my time. caller: you should watch it. beverly, what the think about media coverage of the campaign? caller: i think they go with whatever the hot story of the day. i remember when obama was running against mccain and it seemed like every day i heard about the birth thing. it was terrible. it was just the story of the day. host: you are in missouri. are you seeing a lot of campaign commercials on the air? not for the presidential level? caller: no, very few. i think he has written off misery. even though the women here -- i have not found one democrat. host: besides yourself? caller: that tells me how their mind is. they're not going to a vote for obama, but they're going to vote for romney. i ask this o
as a fact-checking community finding anything wrong with bill clinton's speech at the convention. bill clinton's speech made a compelling case for barack obama, a much stronger case than barack obama or his campaign has made for his reelection. and bill clinton's speech, with very few, very minor exceptions, passed the toughest of the fact checking tests. when he went on jon stewart we found out why. on jon stewart, he said he worked on that for three or four weeks and he consulted policy experts because he wanted to make sure he got it right. was that a compelling case, democrats? i think you think it was. was it factual? yes, it was. if you are going to be prepared to govern competently, can't you make the case for your election based on a factually defensible argument? and if you can't, why should we vote for you, even if you share our ideology, candidate? >> when you took the results of this survey and sat alone with them in your study there in philadelphia, and you looked at this gap, gulf, were you proud of the american people or not? >> when you look at the finding about the sup
the middle class is the result of policies that romney and ryan are supporting. in clinton, iowa, vice presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration would help more americans find jobs. >> we have a jobs crisis in america. wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? ( applause ) we can't afford four more years. we need a real recovery. take a look at just jobs. we lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs since the president took office. he's offering a new tax increase on our job creators that will cost us 700,000 jobs. we're offering really forms. >> ifill: which candidate has the better plan to get the economy back on track? that's the key question in battleground states like north carolina, which only months ago seemed out of reach for the democrats this year. but it's back in play again. jeffrey brown traveled there to discover why. >> lead the way. brown: 26-year-old dewayne owens who served in the marines and is now a professional mixeded marshal artist usually takes on tougher opponents than your correspondent. >> i see. brown: but this weekend on a break
doing her bill clinton impression. >> in my state when people lose their jobs, there's a good chance i'll know them by their name. >> yes. parker can feel your pain just like bill clinton. i think one of the tasks for mitt romney is to prove he can feel your pain, not just inflict it. up next, what difference does it make when your president is also your friend? at least on facebook. thanks, parker. i appreciate it. >> nice job. ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. ♪ spread a little love my way ♪ ♪ spread a little something to remember ♪ [ female announcer ] fresh milk and real cream makes philadelphia and the moment a little richer. so it can feel like you're using nothing at all. but neosporin® eczema essentials™ is different. its multi-action formula restores visibly healthier skin in 3 days. neosporin® eczema essentials™. is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. c
's headed. >> the bill clinton speech. >> i think, yeah, because certainly the metrics haven't changed much. things haven't gotten a great deal better. but i think bill clinton was able to set a predicate and able to say things that barack obama couldn't say. he inherited a mess and he's making it better. he could say i inherited a mess, he couldn't say i'm headaching it b making it better. >> we're saying how mitt romney could win the election if he does well in the debates and turns things around. but the right track/wrong track numbers, i think you would agree with me, the fact that americans, 57% of americans think the economy is getting better, the right track/wrong track is tightening up. it was in the low 30s, now it's at 40%. you look at states like ohio where right track/wrong track is even more positive than that, that does help the president a great deal. >> it does, and that is a pretty remarkable shift in the numbers, as sam just pointed out. and the key is not how people think the economy is today but where they think it's going. and at 57% think it's headed in the right direc
from democrats, clinton, maryland, thank you for waiting, go ahead, shirley. and she hung up so we're going to go next to joe. joining us from johnson, tennessee. go ahead joe. caller: good morning, dr. stein, can't tell you how glad i am you're having this conversation and god bless c-span. i am voting for ron paul in the next election and i'm throwing my vote away, that he can't win and no third party can win and my retort is if you look back over the years, from women's suffrage, civil rights, to more recently the alternative ener movement, have been borne from third parties garn hing enough votes away from the two major political parties so engrained in the status quo that they never impose the sweeping changes so i hope you can comment on the role of third parties not necessarily in winning elections but in changing the agenda to the point where we get the changes we end up treasuring over the next century. host: thank you for the call. dr. jill stein. guest: thank you for making that point, which is very important. in fact, what so many people call progress in this country, w
ohio, undecided. what did you think of the debate and why are you undecided? caller: bill clinton and i voted for george bush then i voted for obama. last night romney looked like a leader. i'm not for big government. i was excited with the national health-care plan until i started talking to some friends and relatives of mine that work in the health-care industry that were expressing concern. i have an aunt that works in the health-care industry and working with the disabled. she says it will be a disaster. she knows people personally and companies that will lose the medicare to the national health care system. they will not be able to accept medicare. that ownsme on goauncles some businesses. i don't consider them wealthy. they will be hit hard through this, if obama gets his tax increases through. host: are you leaning towards mitt romney at this point? caller: it would be hard to persuade me. that rahm it appears to be a leader. mitt romney has worked across the lines -- mitt romney appears to be a leader. i believe he will look down and will cut you off and that is what he has done
should go back to the rates we had when bill clinton was president when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole bunch of millionaires to boot. this is important because by doing that we can not only reduce the deficit, we can not only encourage job growth through small business, but we are also able to make the necessary changes in education and energy. we do have a difference when it comes to small businesses. under my plan, 98% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says, those top 3%, they would be burdened. under romney's version, donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as a small anything, but that's how you define small business. that kind of approach i do not believe will grow our economy. the only way to pay for it without burdening the middle class or blowing up our budget is to make drastic cuts in things like education, making sure that we are continuing to invest in basic science and research, all the things helping america to grow. i think that woul
dramatically since the ryan selection, since medicare, bill clinton's arguments on medicare at the convention, it became central to the discussion, there's been a big shift towards obama in that category. >> this doesn't take medicare off the table. we still have to deal with this. >> you're exactly right. medicare and medicaid are unchecked going to cripple this country. we saw erskine bowles earlier this week in chicago, tom, and i said erskine, isn't it the truth that medicare and medicaid by itself is going to consume every cent that the federal government takes in in 20 years? he said no, that's not true. he said, it's doing it right now. he said, this year alone, in the fiscal year that just ended, every dime the federal government got went to pay medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt. that means everything else that on outside of medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt, we borrowed from china. we borrowed from the saudis, we borrowed. we went deeper in debt. that's unsustainable. and the fact that we're not having that discussion in this camp
of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 1992. it is part of the game. it is what goes on. but i think these debates are going to be really, really important for that, 6%, 7%, 8% who are legitimately undecided or switchable, haven't completely made up their minds. they're going to be watching the three presidential debates, the one vice presidential debate in october. and they'll make up their minds. i think all the people who are voting now early, they basically have already made up their minds obviously. that's why they're voting early and they're not going to necessarily -- they don't think they'll be influenced by the debates. maybe some of them will be. but it will be too late for them because they already will have voted. >> well, let's talk about some of the polls and whether they're indications of anything. particularly these polls that give us a glimpse of three of the nine swing states. journal marist poll showing romney trailing the president by 7 points in new hampshire. romney trailing obama by two points in north ca
to the secretary of state hillary clinton. in that letter, darrell issa and jason chain asked how much the department knew about at least a dozen threats to our ambassador. what else are these lawmakers saying here? >> accounts from whistle blowers, top republicans claiming at least 12 security related incidents before the consulate attack, including this rpg attack in benghazi on june 11. the targeting of the british ambassador is part of a growing body of evidence that the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa was active and seeking targets. the letter from the oversight committee reads in part, quote, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security. the mission in libya was denied these resources by officials in washington. >> i think it's fair to say that we are still working through what we have in the building in terms of documentation, in terms of information about what we knew, who glue it, when they knew and that's part of the process we have to go through. >> hearing is scheduled for the time when witness also testify about the alleged warnings. >> you ha
